Nestled on River Street in the district-formerly-known-as-antique in Troy, NY is one of the best places to treat yo’ self. Sue (who is sweet in many ways) makes cupcakes that tastes just as good as they look, and with flavors like Black Tea Chai, Grande Marnier Espresso, Milk Chocolate Curry, Cabernet and Lemon Drop, this is no run-of-the-mill sweet shop.
She doesn’t just do cupcakes, but a whole range of sweets from Amelie’s favorite, creme brulee, to truffles and tarts and more; it’s hard to walk by without bringing a treat home.
Sweet Sue’s also serves lunch, with a rotating menu of delicious items, and always vegetarian options to boot. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, and if you hang around too long, you’ll find that you might take home some additional cake or mousse that’s been eyeing you from the display case. And that’s not really a problem as the prices are very reasonable. It’s a whole lotta bang for your buck.
